Thanks for the phone clarification. I have Verizon and that deal for my phone. I bought a data package for my iPad. I have bought phone and a data package in NZ for qbout 40 dollars for the phone and a data package from a local company. Gave up pn that idea bcause after we leave the tour, wwe will be in an apt. In Vienna for 12 days. I love to cook and want to explore some wilds, and national parks, etc. cities are cool, but I eventually want to breathe contry air, kick rocks and try to identify plants and other biologicals.

Peggy Ryker Aug 31, 2015 at 04:04 PM

From whom did you buy your data package. Do I have time to get this?
Sheila W Aug 31, 2015 at 05:31 PM

I got my data thru my regular provider - Verizon. It is $40 and includes 100MB of data, 100 min of talk, 100 outgoing texts and unlimited incoming texts. Additional data, if needed, can be added for $25/100MB.

Safe travels to you.

Dodged a bullet. I have a eustachian tube that collapes all too frequently. Thought I had a sinus infectin and fluid in the tube, thus, no flying. E,E N, and T doc told me jsut the tube trick. Hild your nose and blow is my family motto. See you very soon. Thanks for call g.
Sheila W Aug 31, 2015 at 05:32 PM

Yikes! Hope you are better soon. I've been fighting a cold for about a week but am fine.

Peggy Ryker Aug 29, 2015 at 04:23 PM

Here's hoping also.
Sheila W Aug 31, 2015 at 01:07 PM

I called this a/m It is a typo pure and simple. Amazing how many folks looked at the material and never realized there was a problem. See you in Prague!

Peggy Ryker Aug 29, 2015 at 04:10 PM

Haven't noticd the "typos". Maybe you could give them a call Monday.
Sheila W Aug 29, 2015 at 04:18 PM

I will. I hope this is just a typo. I'd hate to thin k we need to book a hotel for our last nite. I'd be ticked.

Sheila W Aug 29, 2015 at 04:03 PM

Has anyone else noticed that on the final info packet, there is no hotel listed for sep 16 even though it clearly shows the program ending on sep 17 with breakfast? Also on the accommodation forms at the front of the packet it only lists hotels thru step 15. Is this a typo? I am confused.

Kata Ihasz Aug 27, 2015 at 08:25 AM

As far as plugs you can use a travel plug from the US (3-pin) connector system for grounded plug system (also referred as US to European) OR a voltage converter from 110-120 V to the European 220-240 V. I hope it helps.
